The collection is comprised of sixty letters written during the years of 1843 to 1872 to George Copeman in England.Fifty-three are original letters, four are copies of the originals which are housed in the Dr. Albert E Senkler, (EJS’s son) collection at the Minnesota Historical Museum in St Paul, and three that were transcribed by hand by his grandson Edmund J Reynolds ( EJR) but the whereabouts of the originals is no longer known.
Transcriptions of the original letters are also available and appear to have been transcribed by EJR, perhaps in the 1920s.
This collection is comprised of papers related to Sir Francis Bond Head. Sir Francis Bond Head (1793-1875) was an English soldier, traveller and author born to James Roper Head of Kent. He was a soldier from 1811-1825 and even served in the campaign of 1815, present at the Battle of Waterloo. He was knighted in 1835 and created a Baronet in the following year. In 1835, he was appointed the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada, and had to deal with the rebellion of 1837 led by William Lyon Mackenzie. In response to the rebellion, Britain replaced Bond Head with Lord Durham as Lieutenant-Governor. Bond Head returned to England and never held any office for the rest of his life. Thereafter, he devoted himself to writing, chiefly for the Quarterly Review. Includes: certificate indicating that Head had visited Niagara Falls in1836, and photograph of Head at age of 80.
